This tiny Korean BBQ stand might not look like much from the outside, but it makes some of our favorite on-the-go food in the neighborhood. They have everything from bibimbap to udon, but we go for the combo meat plate. Two meats of your choice over rice, plus salad, kimchi, and a drink - for less than $14. You simply won’t find that amount of (good) food at that price anywhere else in the area.
